I have recently read through the blurbs on board members in a couple of Christian organisations. Small sample-size I know, but it is quite remarkable how eager the writers of these things are to point out the success which the board members have enjoyed in their professional lives. The hidden message appears to be: these people are clearly not poor, therefore they can be trusted to be on a board.
For Christians, while the poor will always be among us, it seems that they will have a difficult time getting onto our boards.
What a great reversal of the gospel's great reversal.
